soo.....

motors back together... fuel rail is on... accesory belt is on!

i forgot to take pictures... excitement does that to me... but the motor is most definitely going in tomorrow. i just need to pick up some chain/cable at home depot (which do you think would be better?) and a new power steering pump pulley (warped mine from trying to put it on the wrong way, yes im tarded) and crankshaft pulley bolt (sheared the first few threads off of mine trying to use it to pull the pulley onto the crank)

but all will be fixed tomorrow... also... my shipment from glowshift came in.. more pics of all that fun stuff tomorrow....

Aku got bored and wanted to see what my shifter would look like with the center console.... so he put the center console in... kinda.





and with the Steeda knob (which will be going on there... my gf bought it for me)
mind you it will sit all the way down on the shift boot adapter... i just need to drill and retap the threads in the knob for the shifter.





lemme know what you think and i'll keep you all updated tomorrow!

Well he has to leave for school at the latest like thursday next week. So 1 week.

Unless god forbid something explodes and shit goes wrong then he'll be forced to fly back to cali and it'll have to be finished up, prolly next summer, which would suck cuz were so close.

Either that or I have to live at his house and finish it while he's gone but i have no idea wtf i'm doing. I just bolt stuff together when he tells me to lol

lol...

yeah i hope to have the motor fired up this week... should be driveable by next tuesday if all goes well.

i managed to get a new PS pum pulley this morning.. also found a camshaft position sensor... ordered the rest of what i needed from the stealership... should all be in tomorrow.

and im TOTALLY considering sleeping in my car.. in my garage... 1 night this weekend.

motor is definitely going in today.. and the shift knob should be redrilled and tapped as well.

well....

the trans is bolted on... i got 16ft of 1/4" thick braided steel cable (1750lb load capacity) and an engine hoist.... waiting for peeps to come over cause im not about to put it in by my lonesome.

heres how she sits right now...


water pump.. thermostat


oil pressure AND temp sensor


LIM and fuel rail


serpentine belt!


the pulley that has been causing me so much grief... but i got one from the junkyard this morning (i was there at like 8:30) and it spins perfectly straight!


idler pulley... except with the proper bolt and "dust cover" aka glorified funny looking washer.

i also got all the other shiz i need ordered (not including random water tubing and stuff... yadda yadda yadda.. you get the idear.)

so yup.... pretty much just chillin for right now... gettin hungry... might have to reheat some leftovers fer myself.

i'll take better pics in the morning of it just chilling.. and my welder is coming tomorrow to make everything sexy and not moveable... but here's some install pics...


ehancock is on my bumper... we're talking about what i need to hacksaw off.


RAWR... i has a hacksaw.


NCedillios was over and decided to take a pic of my wiring diagram (thats all that needs to be modified)


i was so happy.. i just HAD to hug it..


i'll make sure to get some better pics of it just hanging out in there when its light out again...

i'd like to thank.... My friend Brian and my friend Matt, ehancock, NCedillios, and Aku...
for staying WAY later than they wanted making a few too many trips to home depot (and later on, Meijer) for helping me engineer solutions on the spot and for in general making tonight successful.

i might just grab a pic of it in there right now....

if so.. it'll be its own post.
